Q: What made you choose to support that cause?
A: I have a friend from Liberia, and his mom has always told me how bad it was for the orphans. Since I was little, I always wanted to help them, so when I started my business I immediately wanted to do something.
I’ve been able to sponsor a yearly scholarship for a young lady named Princess for two years, and we’re doing it this year too. It’s $300 a year. She’s 13, too. I really want to go to Liberia to visit her. She sent me an outfit – a Liberian outfit and I love it – and I sent her a necklace and one of my paintings.
